Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his controversial period drama Padmaavat has got into another controversy. People from poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's village are demanding a share from the film’s profit.

You may ask who Malik Muhammad Jayasi is? So, Malik was a poet from Amethi, Uttar Pradesh whose poem inspired Bhansali to make Padmaavat

If media reports are to be believed, the villagers are asking a share in the film's profit so that they can build a research institute and restore the birthplace of Malik Muhammad Jayasi.

The Nagar Palika Chairperson claimed that the film is inspired by the poem which Jayas wrote and hence the poet has all the rights to Padmaavat’s earnings.

Although, people of Amethi have no complaints with the film, however, they will support the film only at the cost of the earning share, he added.

Padmaavat is slated for a 25th January release.
